Oprah in Escada on “David Letterman”

Posted on August 01, 2013


Bowing is appreciated, but not required.


Oprah Winfrey makes an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” to talk about her new movie Lee Daniel’s “The Butler” in New York City in an Escada color block ‘Dolma’ dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

It’s weird to think of Oprah making the talk show rounds, poledancing for her latest movie. It feels like she should be above such things. Like everyone in America should just get a free ticket to an Oprah movie. Then again, you can bet Oprah paid for every dress, shoe and piece of jewelry she wears for this poledance BECAUSE SHE’S OPRAH AND OPRAH DON’T BORROW SHIT. You have to love her for that. Especially since she’s clearly not reaching for the understated side of her jewelry closet at the moment.

What? You thought Oprah had a jewelry box? Peasant, please.

Anyway, she looks good here. It’s all perhaps a bit too coordinated, with the gray/silver & black theme continuing into the accessories. We would have liked one (cliched, we admit) pop of color somewhere here. But the value of owning your poledance clothes, instead of having them lent to you, is that everything tends to fit better. Sure, the dress is pulling and wrinking a bit, but she’s getting out of a limo, waving and walking. It really does fit her really, really well. As do the shoes. Not the slightest heel gap or toe overhang. Oprah knows how to get it done, and she’s not waiting on some skinny bitch stylist to figure out how to make a sample size work on her. Oprah will pay to have that dress made and fitted exactly to her specifications, thank you. And her hair looks really cute.

God, could you imagine trying to style Oprah? Talk about intimidating.
